and john kerry fought it out every day about the war. in 2008 we were at war, and barack obama and john mccain fought it out every day in that war. this week when the financial crisis was absolutely on fire, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless the debate is really bad. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so
of the senate foreign relations committee, john kerry, wants more answers, co-signing a bipartisan letter asking for more details. but he told nbc's andrea mitchell that it should not be a partisan issue. >> the republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, administrative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department. >> reporter: republicans also question how good the investigation can be when security concerns have stopped an fbi team from getting to the crime scene, having to work instead from libya's capitol city of tripoli, 400 miles away. a official said that while that is limited, it is more important to question people in libya thought to know about the attack. and he says the process is yielding more valuable information. one other note, peter king, chairman of the house committee, said that ambassador susan rice should resign because of her statement. >>> all right, we want to turn to andrea mitchell, chief foreign correspondent, and andrea how rare is
in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate but it was senator kerry in december '04 and not president elect kerry. the national polls are close her today than eight years ago but the numbers in key battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put
it will be a good debate, but i certainly would not underestimate what barack obama brings to it. >> reporter: john kerry's playing romney with the president. in a weekend memory, republicans urged kerry to press the president on libya and syria. romney calls obama's foreign policy dangerous. romney's debate plan, clearly and concisely explain how he can fix the economy. >> i expect to be able to describe that in a way people will understand, and if they do, i get elected. >> reporter: his running mate paul ryan is already preparing for his own debate a week away. >> i believe in what i believe, i do what i do, and i really believe in the policies we're providing, that we're pursuing. and at the end of the day, i'm just going to go in there and be me. >> reporter: and if you can't control what actually happens in the debate, you certainly control what happens afterwards. the spin already in the planning. ryan's going to be with romney in virginia. the president is staying in colorado for a rally there. veronica? >> thank you. >>> nato forces in afghanistan say three international service members an

of ohio to act as his opponent while preparing for the debate.... and john kerry played the role of romney stand-in...for president obama. the president has a day job, the presiden'ts been president and has not had the time to practice, all we hear about is that mitt romney's been practicing practicing, practicing wherever he goes. i think mitt romney is going to come in there very prepared, he's going to do very well because he's done very well in all of the debates i think sometimes we expect a major breakthrough, you know a comment. that doesn't happen very often. it happened with reagan and mondale. it happened with reagan and carter, but frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because, frankly, the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. on sunday, president obama headed to las vegas for a campaign event -- while mitt romney attended church in massachusetts....before hunkering down for final debate preparations. i'm cristina mutchler reporting. actress lindsey lohan has another run in
for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong and the administration is trying to cover it by saying she was given the best information available at the time. >> molly: a spokesperson for james clapper says assessment was a spontaneous attack but at some point, that assessment changed and the intelligence community determ
the plan that the republican plan favors the wealthy. >>> and senator john kerry is playing the role of mitt romney in the president's practice session. and ohio senator rob portman is portraying the president in mitt romney's debate. more on the preview of wednesday's big event. >> as running mate paul ryan makes the rounds on the campaign trail here in new hampshire, and ohio, guess what? his boss is hunkering down, getting ready for the first showdown between him and president obama. romney is spending a lot of time this week to prepare for the debate. the same thing for the president. he is off the campaign trail, today, tomorrow, off to nevada. but basically he is spending a lot of this week, we believe, behind closed doors getting ready. meanwhile, both are trying to lower the bar for the candidates. even the candidates themselves are doingñr it. take a listen to mitt romney, recently on the campaign trail. >> i mean, he is president of the united states, a very good speaker. >> now, he is a very good speaker, i am sure in the debates, as last time with senator john mccain he
that quiet. we have spotted senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney in the mock debate sessions for the president in the las vegas area. he has been spotted in the lobby of the hotel, with reading glasses and a pile of papers, going through this like it is a final exam and researching every last bit. the president, when he delivered pizza to campaign volunteers to show he has a calm, cool image headed into the debate, he made clear he also things this is like a final exam. he has been holed up, long hours, inside, dealing with a big workload. >> it is all very nice. although they keeping me indoors all the time, that is a drag, they are making me do my homework. >>reporter: the president says he is doing his homework with 8.1 percent unemployment, the deficit, and now we have new numbers because of the start of the fiscal year, reaching $1.3 trillion although the president promised to cut the budget if half in his first term and balance it down the road. that has not happened. this is a debate about domestic issues. that will be on the agenda tomorrow night. trace? >>trace: we k
critical. there have been strong debates, john kerry had a strong debate against george w. bush in 2004. but he wasn't able to translate that into lasting benefit. that's the best of the next three weeks, to see whether romney can keep it going or whether president obama comes out with a higher level of aggression, higher level of energy in the next debate and stop the momentum that romney accumulated last night. >> okay. yeah, i had so many different thoughts, john, as we watched the whole thing. i remember that a lot of republicans were supporting newt gingrich because just for this moment, they wanted -- they thought newt was such a great debater, they wanted to see someone like newt talk to president obama about his policies and about the last four years. and they thought newt would have been the guy to do it. and i don't think that the republicans now feel like they lost a step by having romney there. and in watching, i've tried to sometimes espouse free market principles, private sector language about how to approach certain things. and i got to tell you, there were a couple times
by the president's own debate partner, and that's senator john kerry. he says he wants answers. so do we, and do the families. mark, it seems to me the worst part is always the cover-up. now with the state department, now we learn that they knew within 24 hours what happened, always seems that when you try to -- well, let's delete this here, move this aside here, that all it does is bring greater suspicion to what was frankly an implausible story to begin with. >> absolutely. we're hearing all these reports that they knew within 24 hours. as you pointed out, ambassador chris stevens in his diary said he was worried about al-qaeda targeting him. that means there was intelligence somewhere, he got that information, that al-qaeda -- that he was being threatened. so why does this administration, when the ambassador is actually killed, assume that it was just a crowd of people and not al-qaeda? the fact is, they had a record of dismissing and -- this is not just a single case. they have a record of dismissing these terrorist attacks and pretending they weren't terrorist attacks. >> sean: wait a minut
back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did better at the next debate. but he did narrow the gap after that first debate. and in a race that's as closes a this, wolf, that could make all the difference. >> very close in florida and virginia, for example and a debate tonight could impact the undecided voters. thanks, gloria. >> uh-huh. >>> you want to talk about the trial of the century, it could have happened if the raid in pakistan had unfolded differently. and a woman who came close to death in portland, maine's harbor can thank her lucky stars for some alert bystanders ready to help her. everyone has goals. take the steps to reach yours, with us with real advice, for real goals. the us bank wealth management advisor can help you. every step of the way. from big steps, to little steps. since 1863 we've helped guide our clients, so they can take the steps to hel
are running the process. john kerry is a formidable challenger there. he'll stand in as mitt romney. one thing we're reporting is both sides trying to lower expectations heading into the debate on wednesday, which is key for both candidates, alex. >> for themselves and increasing them for the other guy. that's what they're doing right now. thank you so much. let's bring in the political power panel. jonathan kapart, and chris cofinus and jackie gingrich kushman, author and daughter of newt gingrich and former adviser to her father's presidential campaign. welcome to the throuee of you. five days is all mitt romney has before the debate. the politico article everybody is talking about today say this isn't the chair or ho hum convention or the leaked video or distorted polls or the message or mormonism. it's mitt. does he have enough time for a real game change? >> you know, five days before the first debate, 40 days before election day people go around the country already are starting to vote early voting in a bunch of states across the country. it's unclear whether there's enough time. as that
today, they're prepping for wednesday's debate. >>> we've learned that senator john kerry is going to play the role of mitt romney in the president's practice sessions. ohio senator rob portman is portraying the president in mitt romney's debates, as well. >>> president obama and mitt romney will go face to face wednesday in the first of three presidential debates. you can watch it live right here on cnn, 7:00 eastern. and also cnn.com. don't miss that. >>> we could all agree having children changes your life forever. as parents, we want what is best for our kids. we want to make sure our children are safe and happy. you would think that would be the case for every parent. not so. take a look at this man. this father was willing to strap on a vest filled with explosives and kill as many people as possible, including himself. this father wanted to desert his son, let him grow up without a dad. this father says it is perfectly okay if his 4-year-old son becomes a suicide bomber, too. cnn got this stunning exclusive interview with the father whose choices are so difficult to understa
john kerry is standing in for mitt romney in president obama's debate rehearsals. on the oth side, senator rob portman will fly with mitt romney to colorado on monday. he is playing the role of president obama in romney's practice round. >> while the candidates prepare for that debate, their running mates are courting voters in battleground states. republican paul ryan is in new hampshire and ohio today. he said president obama's economic policies were contributing to a lower standard of living. >> you're either part of the problem or part of the solution. and you know what? president obama has become part of the problem, and mitt romney is the solution. >> and vice president joe biden is wrapping up a two-day swing through florida. at a rally in ft. myers, he blasted romney and ryan on medicare. >> if what the republicans -- if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and biden is true on medicare, why would the american medical suggestion endorse our position? why would the national american hospital association and most importantly, why would aarp endorse us? >> president ob
with senator john kerry and mitt romney is squaring off against senator rob portman. both candidates have challenges and checklists. president obama's working on shorter answers, trying to avoid sounding like the professor he was before the white house. democrats say he needs to look strong and forceful and not appear irritated or impatient. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as opposed to information in this. >> reporter: and mitt romney? he has to seem relatable, especially after his 47% comment. how can he do that? show compassion? show he's competent and connect with the voters? >> on those three cs that's where he really has got to do well. >> reporter: romney arrived in colorado to continue his debate prep but took a brief break to rally supporters. >> what an honor. what a welcome. what a colorado welcome. thank you so much. >> the prls president also took a break with a visit to the nevada campaign office. >> hi, this is
? are they that important? >> absolutely. you know, i, eight years ago, was on the kerry campaign. and john kerry came into that first debate and changed the entire dynamic of that race. we were eight points down. and we came out of the debates tied or even a little bit ahead. so absolutely, debates are very important. it's the first time that voters really get to see these two candidates side by side. and to compare not just their styles, because i know a lot of people will be talking about style tonight. but really their visions. the details, the specifics, where they want to take the country. how they're answering some of these tough questions, and whether they're giving real answers. so absolutely. i think mitt romney has an opportunity to shake up the race tonight. you know, obviously, you know, expectations, both sides have been playing the expectations game. the reality is that challengers win the first debate more often than not. you know, you might think that's me playing expectations, but that's also a fact. and we know that mitt romney is a good debater. the president's a pretty good debate
. the democrats, john kerry in the early '90s and some others said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down the road. but that's all gone. i have spoken to a republican politician, why is that? the answer was we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it's not worth the cost or the hassle. part of it was there is an incredibly bitter campaign in california over proposition 209 which banned racial preferences in 1996. really better. say there's fair to was a lot of demonizing going on against the supporters of proposition 209 against the people opposing affirmative action. it was bloody and i think politicians look at that and say i don't want to get into that. joe lieberman backed off his questions about affirmative- action after that campaign. he said that was one reason he was backing off. even jesse jackson is attacking me, i better rethink it. >> other questions? this gentleman here in the front? wait until the microphone gets to you. >> i apologize if this is very obvious to everyone in the
could prove to be a huge opportunity for him. i think it was back, when john kerry was going against w, and i think he was behind eight points. after that debate, that one of the crucial presidential debates it was basically a one-point race at that point. so. >> he need a night like that. and mitt romney did very well in the -- in the, debates during the primaries. ve well. belt better than a lot. he need one of those nights. >> he has been preparing for the debates for three years. >> there you go. sure they got it all memorized. they got their zirngz reangers . >>> the government's troubled gun tracking program, called fast and furious. dozens of more weapons rather that were part of the investigation are being linked to crimes in mexico. our partners at univision, report 57 pref yufsly undiscovered guns connect to fast and furious have now been found at the sites of murders, kidnappings and brutal massacres. >>> breaking news from afghanistan overnight. nato says three of its troops have been killeden a bombing. the interpreter also died. this comes after an american service member
dlidded that john kerry even is he working with barack obama on the debates is going to lead an investigation to actually see what happened. we need to know what the house knew and why we did not beef up security at our embassies. the fact that this anti-muslim film came out in january we used that to blame the attacks in benghazi? >> marc, why the detect though fox news reporting 24 hours afterwards and our sources confirming that and in my mind i'm looking at the calendar september 11th. five days later have you secretary rice up on the sunday talk shows on five different shows vociferously defending, this mark? >> again, the president of the united states within 24 hours called this an act of terror. we knew this was a terrorist attack. we didn't know who did it and whether it was planned. it turns out that, again, the terrorists saw this it spontaneous protest against the video, the despicable video. they ran home and got their march -- mortars. only seven hours that they used those mortars. >> up in the debates? >> i believe this is going to be a problem. as ben stein sa
and the democrats, john kerry and the early 90s, joe lieberman in the early 90s and others said maybe it is time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down that road. but that is all gone. i've spoken to republican politicians, why is that? the answer is we get so if we ever raise their voices against affirmative action it is just not worth the cost, not worth the hassle. part of it ironically was an incredibly bitter campaign in california over proposition 209, which gave preferences in 1996. really better than i think it is fair to say there is not a lot of demonizing and demagogy going on against the supporters of proposition 209 against the people opposing affirmative action. it was bloody and i think politicians sort of look at that and say i don't want to get into that. and in fact, joe lieberman backed off his questions about affirmative action after a result of that campaign he said that was one of the reasons he was backing off. my gosh can't even jesse jackson is attacking me. i better rethink this. >> other questions here? yes, right here, th
or not that was -- it was dick kated by politics the initial response. we see today senator john kerry, aemocrat the senate asking the right questions. these are questions that others memberenof thee and house are also sking. so ihi you ought to expect we will see extensive hearings and investigation on this>> now the week that f agents who have bnt tselibya to investigate, they still have not beenble to get to the scene of thisro actionn bengzi. they're basically holed hundreds of miles away in tripoli, the capital. you have new information? >> that's right, wolf. so you've got a handful -- u've got some fbi agents in tripoli waiting todeploo benghazi. yoveot dozs of other fbi agents in countries -- in third countries waiting visas to get into libya te to go to benghazi. i will tell you, wolf, talking to law enforcement officials as recently as this afternoon, it's been today's day 18 since the attack. and the point made to me, we may not evgoen now. what would be the point? what are we going to learn there? and how tragic is that? we've lost four americans including the united states ambassador, and the
. john kerry, he won the first two debates against george w. bush. in the third debate team a day reference to -- in the third debate he did well, but made a reference to vice-president dick cheney's daughter being a lesbian, and the republicans pushed back. guest: for those and not been in a -- they go into the spin room. you get to talk to them. the journalists take that with a grain of salt. in.y are expecting the sp they expect them to tell you how great they did. an important piece of this comes from media analysis where you take a step back and look at it . look at how the media -- were they spun? guest: i will be in the spin room and i expect to be a little dizzy. caller: i have to say that i think there is a liberal bias in the media and it is so clear and so obvious. not just based on studies and conservative groups. look at the coverage over libya. our embassy was burning overseas. killed.plomats were cl the news coverage was about mitt romney's gaffes. not about the changing story. if george bush was president, i think this would be a major scandal. yet it has been comp
, sometimes in a word, smug, so we're told both senator john kerry playing mitt romney and senator rob portman playing the president have been pretty tough, pretty tough on the candidates in these practice sessions to try to help them prepare for what can be pretty stressful high pressure moments on that debate stage. >> i can't imagine. and specifically in colorado, one of the big issues there, immigration, mitt romney making news in talking to the denver post that, you know, if and when he's elected that he would not revoke that executive order that president obama recently issued, you know, to protect some illegal immigrants and documented immigrants who came here as young children. let me quote, in romney's words, the people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two year visa should expect it will continue to be valid. i'm not going to take something that they have purchased. what does that tell you, when you read into that, is he marching toward the center here? >> reporter: well, it tells you that he's politically being smart. it also tells yo
mike dukakis and john kerry who all didn't do very well. if you were picking a presidential candidate who would you choose? >> anyone but mitt. >> anyone but mitt romney. this guy a one percenter hiding money in the cayman islands. not hiding, it's probably legal but putting money there and he's the former governor of massachusetts. we have not had a person from massachusetts win the presidency since 1960. ok? >> wow. >> before the civil rights act was passed was the last time we had a president from massachusetts win ask i'm not saying mitt romney is a bad guy. i'm sure he's a nice guy, but i will say that if i was going to write a movie and create a bad guy orvilleen, i would have them be a really, really wealthy out of touch guy who stashes his money in cayman bank accounts and fires people for a living. >> you know, because he likes to fire people. >> he likes being able to fire people. >> and get him -- get him a car garage for his vacation home. >> car elevator. >> elevator, yes car elevator. there are so many things about mitt romney. we could go on and on. i'm sure i's a very
. yeah. for sure. you bet. i got it. >> even -- even the you betcha. that's a good impersonation. john kerry, he is the stand-in nosh mitt romney this go around. what is he doing with the president? i assume that there's a lot of tough policy questions. are they practicing zingers as well? how are they actually doing that? >> you know, i'm not sure how it's working out for them, but i can tell you what i would do or what normally is done. the challenge is that you are on offense. you are going to take incoming scuds, and you're going to have to respond to those and pivot, so the challenge in debate practice is how can you get to talking about what you want to talk about rather than chasing a rabbit down the hole. well, if you can imagine, suzanne, when you are standing behind a podium and somebody is attacking you, whether it's on your -- about something personal or about a policy or they're lying about you, you want with every fiber of your being to attack back or to respond, but the question is you only have so much real estate, and you have to pick your battles because you want to m
shed that elite, sort of image. romney is the extreme version of john kerry, right? >> jamal: right. was there ever a chance, though that we could go for five more weeks without something shaking up this race? it seems to me mitt romney was going to do something, some external factor was going to happen, there was no way we were going to go five weeks on the trajectory that we were on. >> yes, and we have the jobs numbers coming out, and the jobs numbers that will come out in the first week of november. and the media likes to write the horse race stories, and justify their ability to spend the rest of these five weeks on the campaign trail. so somebody was going to write the romney is having a comeback story, and romney just gave them a reason to do so. >> jamal: okay. reid wilson thank you. check out "the hot line." thank you for being here. i am jamal simmons, and this is the "bill press show." >> announcer: radio meets television, the "bill press show." now on current tv. ♪ >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. they're doing this this corruption base
